Astonish Me: A Magical Mystery Through Nature’s Hidden Secrets

The World Wildlife Fund turns 50 this year, and, to mark the occasion, the acclaimed dramatist Stephen Poliakoff and director Charles Sturridge have teamed up to shoot ‘Astonish Me,’ a short, magical tale that reminds us of the many mysteries nature still conceals.

Every year, scientists discover somewhere in the neighborhood of 15,000 new species. (See some of the most intriguing recent ones here.) But this could all disappear if we don’t pay more attention to conservation. Everyone who worked on the film — from actors to film crew — did so for free. The action takes place in London’s Natural History Museum.
